Any member of staff is eligible to stand
This includes senior leaders, teachers and support staff, as long as they're employed at your school at the time of the election.
Their role will end either at the end of their term of office, or if they leave the school.
This is set out in regulation 7 of the 2012 regulations and page 15 of DfE guidance here.
There aren't any national time limits for the different stages of holding staff governor
